I just joined  the Cape Ann TimeBank 

Two lovely ladies have signed up for their April Spring 2016 closet review, edit and clean-out. 

In preparing them I sent some simple instructions, create a Pinterest Board of the looks you love. Dream Big. Get a ton of images that reflect where you want your look to go this year. That will give us inspiration as we edit down the existing wardrobe. 

I also have some boxes or bins required for the actual hour we spend together. Given that a portion of the closet will need to go to charity I love having the charity box, then one box for repair and alterations, another for give away to friends and family. Often the last box is what is left to work from to create the wardrobe that reflects the direction to move forward towards that Pinterest Board Dream Big look for the rest of the year. 

I also sent this note and book off to the two ladies. Pick the book up for yourself so worthwhile. 

Please accept this gift in preparation for our session.

Thank you for letting me come in to help you to gain that insight and perspective on what you already have in your closet and what key elements need to be added to complete your look.  

Our upcoming visit may extend us going on a shopping spree. With my help we can take a shopping adventure, our goal  being to try something totally new and add one great seasonal piece to your current wardrobe.

Have you been up to Lowell, MA lately? I had not been for many, many years and on Saturday we took a little excursion. Mill No 5 in Lowell is so easy to find and so worth the trip. It's quite a wonderful experience. First you have a mixed-use space that is so wonderful in it's concept and simplicity. Great old mill space, tons of refurbished vintage interior to set the stage for a warm feel, great coffee shop, great small theatre and great little yoga studio. There are several wonderful small shops with sole proprietors speaking to you about their products like an old world European shopping experience. I loved everything about it. Lot's of great things to do there, live music and events and a maker space to open up this Spring. It's worth checking out.

OK! Vector Home Improvement has left the building. What a terrific job, well done. My gosh when you work with someone wonderful it makes a huge difference. The team from Vector Home included a cleaning specialist whom I have hired to clean my home twice per month. Check them out on Facebook or private email me for the contact information.
Happy to have my house back, and now thinking about Phase 11....

Working outside of Fashion

Hello everyone... I have been missing in action for two very good reasons:

1. The repair work from the storms of 2015 is just getting done over these last two weeks. I have a great contractor and my damage was insignificant compared to some of you but yet what a huge disruption of three of my living spaces. Kitchen, Dining Room/Living Room and a bay window in the study. It may be winding down today.

2. Paperwork for the merger of two lives - the Schraffa/Santin merger of all things. One really does not think about the impact of name change and consolidation of two of everything. Lots of legal work and mumbo/jumbo about will, insurance, social security accounts and tax filing. This may never wind down as I feel like you get one thing finished and it opens up three other related things.

I just want to get back to fashion!

I am booking for closet clean ups and wardrobe consults. Right now February is getting booked and I should have some great before and after pictures soon and will post them on Instagram.

Reach out to me to schedule your appointments. There are only so many free Tuesday and Wednesday open slots left for February.

Thanks for reading and keeping up with all things North of Boston!
